What Does The PXT Select Assessment Look Like?

PXT Select uses assessment results to predict a candidate’s success. It compares the candidate’s assessment results with a Performance model. PXT Select will use the following data sources to build a performance model.

  • Current employee data
  • Data were taken from our performance model library

A Job Analysis Survey: Insights

Combination of these data sources

Once a performance model has been built, the candidate will be invited to take their PXT job fit assessment. PXT Select uses advanced assessment methods called computerized adaptive testing. Adaptive testing uses hundreds of questions but asks only specific questions based upon how the user answered previous questions. This allows for a faster assessment and more precise results.

Scores are instantly processed and compared with a performance model.

The Verbal Skill section shows that the performance model was looking to hire a candidate with a medium score (between 3-7). 

Assessments are about how well candidates fit the model, not how high they scored.
